Online dating scams fake profiles

Never re-ship anything for strangers, especially to Africa.

There is a reason why online merchants usually don't ship there.

Apply the same common sense rules of safe dating online as you would in person. The lady said for me to get a money Pak card for 500 dollars. For collateral damage they can't load money on a card with a zero balance and there had to be 100$ for every 1000$ trying to be loaded.

I have been chatting to a man who contacted me from the website He then said he was away on business in West Africa.

I found this very strange and can think of no logical reason as to why they do this.

I believe this is quite a vicious scam as they are stealing from people who are looking for a partner.

Now, i just want to highlight this in the hope something can be done about it, the company is based in Belgium, well thats what they advertise, and i believe they have a team of people who are pretending to be the person that is in the profile, responding to emails from unsuspecting customers, keeping them on a string as to extract money from them, It even says that when you cancell the account the membership will terminate immediately even if you have paid until a certain time that has yet to expire.

In the end, the money will be gone along with the person you thought you knew.
